LEAVE THE LIGHTS ON
A mother and her small daughter were walking past the house in Springfield, Illinois, where Abraham Lincoln once lived. The lights were burning inside, making the home seem warm and inviting. They paused for a few minutes as the mother told the girl what a great President Mr. Lincoln had been and how the whole nation mourned when he died. The youngster listened with rapt attention. Then, noticing the glow coming from the windows, she said, “Look, Momma. When Mr. Lincoln went away, he left the lights on.” The influence of our lives continues even after we die. notice what the writer of Hebrews said of Abel — “he being dead yet speaketh,” Hebrews 11:4. What we do for the Lord can have a positive influence on succeeding generations.
